jankplus@xxxxxxxxx (Mike Jankulak), in article <g4m2di$3is$1@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>, dixit:
So perhaps, I thought, people just keep talking to keep their
brains from starting to work, or however the late Douglas Adams
phrased it. Because clearly it doesn't *mean* anything.
It means you have intimate body language. And they can't actually
quite see a resemblance. So they ask.
(People who are clueful enough to include 'partner' in their set of
possibilities are generally also clueful enough not to come out and
ask directly. Or just think it's obvious.)
